“Resourceful Wednesdays” are intended to inspire readers with anything STYLED!! From photo sessions, to packaging, to clothing, to room decor and everything in between!! As long as it highlights fabulous photography and inspires families, we want to see it!!  Today’s adorably styled first birthday party comes to us from Lisa Marie Photographie.
What Lisa says: Baby Jayden just turned 1 and he has the MOST AWESOME carnival themed cake smash to prove it! I drove down to Irvine, CA to meet this little guy and his super spiffy family a couple weeks ago and let me tell you, the set up was just a dream for a photographer. Let me call it Pinterest perfection! Mom, aka Mary, was a referral through a family that I took photos of earlier in the year. Mary wasn’t sure if she wanted to do Dr. Suess or Carnival themed- but as much as I love Cat in the Hat…this was perfect- so many possibilities  and activities for the kids to participate in! Face painting, balloon animals, popcorn, shaved ice, a jumpy topped off by a magic show by the “Handsome Hector” with a live rabbit! Let’s just say the kids were floored by it all! Never a dull moment!  
What Rachel and Lisa say:  We are suckers for details and this party spared none from the personalized straws to the popcorn favors!  We are crazy for the vintage high chair from Shoomie Occasions, complete with party hat. Rachel loves elephants… need I say more??  But that cake takes the prize, what a work of art, right down to the last popcorn kernel!  Such a festive and gorgeous spread perfectly captured by Lisa Marie Photographie.
